quote: Who else on here thinks Pete deserves to be in the Hall?
I definitely think Pete Rose should be in the HOF. And his plaque should mention his being banned for gambling after it lists his great on field accomplishments. The same goes for all of the proven PED users. The HOF is a museum.
I hope he at least gets after he is dead. It is a lifetime ban after all. Ideally, put everyone in now (Rose, Jackson, and the PED guys) that have the career of a typical HOF, but I would settle for posthumous induction.
The only one keeping Rose out of the HOF, is himself.
He continues to be a degenerate gambler, who's life revolves around asian women and gambling on the ponies and sports. He was told by friends to distance himself from the gambling, as it would be his quickest way to ever get back in, yet he would show up as the main speaker at a horse betting tourney the next day.
Might take his death to get him in, as he is his own worst enemy.
Pete Rose is a hall of famed in my book. I will not support of of Obama is involved however. Obama can't be taken seriously. Therefore, he can't campaign or make an executive order for the best hitter of the game.
